Origen: discussing prayer

Tuesday, March 1, 2016
    Feast of David, Bishop of Menevia, Patron of Wales, c.601
    And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
    —Romans 8:27 (NIV)
    The discussion of prayer is so great a task that it requires the Father to reveal it, His Firstborn Word to teach it, and the Spirit to enable us to think and speak rightly of so great a subject.
    ... Origen (185?-254?), Origen, book 4, Rowan A. Greer, tr., Paulist Press, 1979, p. 86 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:26-27; Luke 11:1-4; John 14:12-13, 26
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me the mind of Christ so that I might please you in prayer.
